I don't know if 0706 include the PLL fix and they don't even say if Ivy is supported. They say new CPUs supported but this could be the i7-2700K TBA.

Also I've read a few that once they installed 0902, were not able to install 0706, considered as a downgrade. Then I saw a procedure to get around that.

I'll stay with 0902 for now.

It should read just like the BIOS can read it under monitoring. Both in BIOS and Fan Xpert I was able to get the RPM of my Noctua fan but impossible to control.

Thanks, Rhialto. Usually the higher number is the newer BIOS, so when 0706 was released after 0902, it made me wonder if it was the newer BIOS or not. I installed 0902 for the same reasons that you state. I used the ASUS Update tool included as part of the AI Suite software to install 0902.

Is that how others are updating their BIOS, too? The User Guide covers other processes, but I decided to use AI Suite's tool since I could download the BIOS and then update it from the C drive location.

I put the file on C:\ then go into the BIOS to update. I forgot how it is called but there is a place inside the BIOS that will start the update utility.

Dang, used to be able to get 4 Ghz with 1.195 vcore with stock bios.

Updated bios and now it takes 1.21 vcore to get to 4 Ghz...


Nevermind, seems stable again after changing a few settings...

I just built my ROG Gene-Z system last week, and everyday I learn more about what it can do and how simple it is to safely OC.


So far just usung the Asus software and get an easy 4.40GHz out of the 2500K. Idles at 20 to 23*C and after hours of running Prime95 it maxed out a temp of 54*C.

Hello guys, I've asked this before but I lost track of the response...

I'm getting the Maximus IV Gene-Z mobo, I have a Hyper 212+ cooler. My question is do I need low profile RAM for this? I heard the Corsair Vengeance heatsinks might be a problem with this.

Can anyone with this setup (or not) help me?

Also, anyone knows where can I get this in a retail store in LA? I can't order from newegg since I'm not in the US at the moment...

How is this boards EFI bios. Is there a lot of support for it? How does it compare to others? Should I be worried that the bios is EFI vs UEFI? Can 3 pin fans be controlled via voltage?

@ Charlie117

The Hyper 212+ cooler shouldn't be an issue with the Corsair Vengeance RAM heatsinks ... it's a TALL CPU Cooler but not overly WIDE or fat if you will, also depends if you're getting 8GB you for sure have no issue because you'd just use slots #2 and #4 ... if you're filling up w/ 16GB, (or more now that Corsair has 8GB Vengeance Dimm sticks) then at worst, if it hits you can either just raise the FAN /or remove one of the HeatSpeaders like I did ... 009-1.jpg


As far retail stores in LA w/ the GENE ... you're SOL ... neither FRY's or MicroCenter carry it ... I'd still order via NewEgg and just WILL CALL it, as their warehouse is in the City of Industry, in the LA area. I've picked up some of my stuff from them when I didn't want it shipped via UPS to risk the damage, and it couldn't be easier.
